The last tune is a trio of just Dewey on alto, instead of his usual tenor, plus Grenadier and Jackson — Dewey had requested time for a solo piece. Joshua crossed the street for an espresso. By time he got back, Dewey was packing up. One take. Free, relaxed, fierce, full of guttural cries and bluesy bop phrases, the result — “GJ” — was meant as a gift for Joshua’s infant son, Jadon. Now Dewey’s son has passed it along as a gift to the listener.
